Moving Stories – Sims Williams helps Tracey with her life-changing move

Back to news

Moving into her dream bungalow in Climping, near Arundel, means Tracey Taylor can now read a bedtime story to her seven-year-old daughter Poppy.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) sufferer Tracey, uses a wheelchair and she was struggling to get upstairs in the Yapton house she shared with Poppy and husband Jake.

A quick move was important

Tracey says, “We needed to move to a bungalow as soon as possible because I was no longer able to access some areas of my own home and this was taking its toll on our family life.”

The Taylor’s found the perfect bungalow in nearby Climping which was on the market with independent local estate agents Sims Williams.

“When Pam Bunting from Sims Williams showed us around the bungalow, we knew instantly it was the perfect property for us and we put an offer in on our way home.”

“We needed to sell our house to make it happen so we asked Sims Williams to carry out a valuation. Richard Moores came to see us and he was so friendly and genuine that we signed up with Sims Williams on the spot, and I’m so glad we did,” says Tracey.

Sims Williams secured over 98% of the asking price and the move took just 10 weeks.

Working closely with both parties, Sims Williams agreed an exclusivity period with the bungalow vendor and pulled out all the stops to market and sell the Taylor’s Yapton home.

Members of the Sims Williams sales team accompanied six viewings and the Taylor’s accepted an offer which was over 98% of their asking price.

Within 10 weeks, Tracey, Jake and Poppy were living in their new home and feeling like they’d been there forever.


The move was so speedy and stress-free

“I’m still pinching myself and enjoying the freedom that my new home gives me. I am so grateful to Sims Williams for making our move so speedy and stress-free – they literally took care of every step of the process and every member of the team was so friendly and helpful.”

“This move has literally been life-changing for me and my family and I count my lucky stars that Sims Williams helped make it all happen – they really were on our side,” says Tracey.

Richard Moores, a partner at Sims Williams says, “Our whole team appreciated how important this move was for Tracey and her family and I’m delighted we were able to secure a good price for both the vendor and the Taylor’s.”

Property Purchase

I would like to thank Sims Williams for their first class service when we bought a property from the Millgate development in Barnham. Both Jane and Marilyn went above and beyond to support our house purchase. They were always kind, helpful and friendly. Thank you very much.

Not just another Buyer!

I had nothing but a positive experience with Sims Williams. Very helpful team, always responded quickly and will go above and beyond to make sure the process is as easy and stress free as possible. Emma was amazing, totally professional but extremely friendly, giving advise and opinions that were not always related to the property. Moving from a completely different county and not always knowing who to ask or contact, Emma was always on hand to help. Emma made me feel that we were not just another buyer but someone she was interested in. Thank you.

Repeat statement request

I had to query a statement on my account as I was in the process of completing a tax return. Having requested a repeat statement and receiving it very promptly, I realised I'd asked for the wrong one. The correct one was sent with an explanation of the details. Again efficiently sent out to me on the same day. Many thanks to Jo Mallett
